"Ken thought he was having a nightmare. He felt fingers prodding him and he couldn’t breathe. The fingers turned to fully formed hands and they multiplied as he watched in fascination as their prodding became more urgent and they started to pull and poke at his body. It took him a while to realise he wasn’t sleeping.
The cold realisation that the pain in his chest had killed him hit like a punch in the guts. He would have been furious had he not been so frightened. Ken tried to compose himself and waited for the beckoning white light that he knew must surely come. But the scabby, gnarled and bloody hands started dragging him downwards. To add to his fear he looked around and saw a number of faces closing in; some tortuous, some smiling, but all gruesome. The hands pulled him further down and the faces taunted him.
He screamed but no one came to help."

John Fear was born into a religious sect known as the Exclusive Brethren. This sheltered him from the outside world as he grew up, but could not hide him from its influences. A struggle began in his mind that led him to leave the Brethren, along with his young family.
This is a story that was always meant to be told. During his later life John Fear had prepared a lot of the book, along with notes for chapters that he knew would not be completed. It is only now, over twenty years later, that the book is finally being published. It contains original content written by John, along with diary notes, letters and magazine articles. The final chapters are written by his second eldest son, Alastair. The memoir is introduced and edited by his eldest son, Robert, as a tribute to his father’s amazing life.
“Great intro, so much is said in just a few words. The author has put lots of feeling into it too. A quality presentation. Excellent cover, excellent photos, chapter titles and accuracy. Lovely evocative writing.
Well, thank heaven that Robert Fear decided to publish his father's gem of a book! This is not to be missed - I simply couldn't put it down! John Fear certainly had an entertaining command of the English language and tells a wonderful tale of his life.
There is great variety from cosy family memories to horrific scenes in a coup. A variety of techniques are used to portray this memoir - diary entries, a telegram, and letters. I like the travel aspect to this memoir too - I wasn't expecting it.
A fantastic book. A wonderful and powerful tribute."

She falls in love with one of the foals and is outraged to learn the filly is considered worthless as it was born lame.

We left my drunken father in the name of a better life. And the name of that better life was Tom, a local gangster with the face of the devil himself.

And now, with every single word I can live free.

Reviewed By Taylor Wade for Readers’ Favorite - 5 stars!
"Beyond Life is an incredibly humorous story about the afterlife. The characters are extremely realistic and engaging. McEwan did a wonderful job of creating real characters that I fell in love with, cried with, and laughed with like they were real people. I can't wait to see what happens to Claire and her friends in future installments. Beyond Life is funny, interesting, thought provoking and a little dark and scary, which makes it a truly fantastic read. McEwan writes with an excellent sensitivity to her characters and readers.

In this fast paced epic, David Sanz and Rafael Perato face adversaries more devious and powerful than themselves, and it is only faith, courage, and unlikely alliances, that may save them both from the Inquisitor and the deadly marauder, Alejandro.
Readers' Favorite, Five Stars
The Scattered Flock is the second novel in The Flock Trilogy by Jana Petken. Set in Spain during the Spanish Inquisition, the book immediately struck me as incredibly well researched and thought out in terms of the historical elements built into the story. The author has a very natural writing style as she develops her characters and the plot itself. David Sanz is the lead character, who is re-introduced following the first book, and is a Spanish Jew who has endured many tragedies in his life to date. We are then introduced to a second protagonist, Rafael Perato, leading a much more regal existence, who gives the reader a definite contrast to the life and times during this era. Both, however, are on their own quest for justice during what is evidently a cruel and torturous period of history.
Jana Petken writes a real page turner in The Scattered Flock, and I didn’t feel that I had missed out by not reading the first book in this series. This is the art and quality of a good writer, one who allows a reader to pick up any novel in any order, but at the same time, leaving me, as the reader, wanting to go back to the start and read the first book in this intriguing and cleverly written trilogy. I congratulate Jana on her style, poise and passion, and whilst the story line can be graphic at times, she does this with grace, making me feel like I was there watching every moment in her characters’ lives. Truly deserving of its five star rating, The Scattered Flock is a fantastic read! Really excellent story - I literally could not put it down, reading from cover to cover!
Ransomed Heart is the story of a battle for an identity that had been stolen. It is the story of a struggle one woman never imagined would become her own. More than anything, it is a story of her journey to freedom, after living as a lesbian for ten years. This book is for those who are struggling with their identity, for those who feel trapped in a lifestyle that may feel comfortable, yet contradicts a greater truth, a greater Love. It is for families and friends of those who are in the midst of this struggle, who may feel there is no hope. And it is for those who are uncertain about all of it with the many varying messages being delivered in a very broken and lost world. It is possible to walk away from this lifestyle through total surrender to Jesus. His love sheds light on the confusion the enemy uses to attack the place he knows will keep us in bondage, our very identities. Jesus wants you to see yourself the way He sees you. You can walk in freedom, through experiencing a love that knows no boundaries, a love that has ransomed your heart, a love that would lay down His life so that you can know Him.

The Immortal Lover
As Kristin Tabor stood atop Ouray’s Peak at the moment of her final quest she pondered.
Chief Jack knew: whenever the red man wars against the white, it is always the red man who loses.
But which was she?
Jamie said his mother’s blood flowed in his veins.
Just so, her father’s blood flowed in hers.
And so it had been husband against wife.
Father against daughter.
Brother against sister.
Whenever the red man wars against the white, it is always the red man who loses.
And what if the red man is you?
And what if the white man is you?
And what if the red man and what if the white man both together, mixed together, flowed freely together in the same veins and those veins were you?
The history of the massacre of White River, Colorado of 1879 provides the backdrop for the story of the Tabor family in contemporary times. When family matriarch Christiana Tabor lies dying, she implores her daughter Christine to contact the Ute Shaman Sowowic to guide her passing. Christine Tabor does so, awakening her long buried heritage. The awakening ruptures the Tabor household: Mickey Tabor, Christine’s husband cannot nor will not understand the longing created in his wife. Tensions in the once happy household escalate with brother, Jamie, and sister, Kristin, caught between two immovable forces, until one day, without explanation or preamble, Christine Tabor is gone.
Mickey Tabor begins a long slow slide into alcoholism, secrets, and violence. What once was a close relationship between Kristin and Jamie grows strained and distant. Jamie, once Kristin’s hero, seems to align with his father. One day challenging her father’s strict admonitions and Jamie’s repeated warnings, Kristin breaks open the lock to her father’s room. There, she finds the w’ni thokunup—a Ute musical instrument given to her mother by her grandmother-- and her mother’s letters. Mickey finds Kristin, and attacks her brutally. When Jamie comes home from hockey practice, he stumbles ashen upon the scene, and rushes Kristin to the hospital. Unconscious, Kristin dreams of her mother and grandmother. Upon her return from the hospital, she leaves home for good.
Thus begins fourteen year old Kristin Tabor’s journey, a journey that will take her backward in search of her mother and her Ute heritage, and forward to find romance and love, and eventually, reunification and hope.

Spanning the trajectory from abuse, complex trauma, addictions, the relational quest, recovery and treatment, and ultimately thriving creatively and spiritually, this assortment of writings offers a comprehensive assessment of the healing process and the triumph of reclamation.
These are linked stories, in the spirit of Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. They are about a sixteen-year old girl, Kedzie Greer, who was raised in a utopian community and leaves home to make her way in a dystopian society. The year is 2199; the place, the Reunited States.
In these stories, technology coexists with a haunted world. There are witches and robots, ghosts and e-beasts, a mystical lake and a human warehouse.
If you want to get into the main story at once, begin with “Leaving Home.” It is about Kedzie's decision to seek a life outside the town gates.
If you want to begin with background on the town, start with “The Town With Four Names.” It has had a long strange trip from its beginning in the late nineteenth century, when it resembled the Chautauqua Institution, to 2199.

—Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation and Life Visioning

This first loosely autobiographical book in The Mug Trilogy tells the story of Jersey-born Mug, a troubled girl from a recently broken home. It covers her experiences as a sixteen-year-old girl at the Isle of Wight Music Festival in 1970, the same year that she follows a guru. It describes her tumultuous years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. Dramatic events follow on from the evening they meet at a student party, when Mug attempts to save David from attempting a very public drunken suicide attempt.
Gary Troia is a writer, he has also been a bricklayer, a teacher, a philosophy student and a sufferer of several disorders, including: manic depression, alcoholism, fear of flying and a dislike of most people.
After Gary announces that he will no longer fly, his wife, Poppo books a coach holiday to Lake Como. One week later, with the newly acquired kittens dropped off at the cattery, Gary and Poppo embark on a twenty-four hour coach journey to Italy.
Gary always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. It spurred him on. For a while, his strategy worked. But soon the energy of raw emotion would dissipate, and he would be back where he started. What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events - involving gangsters, the ICF, deportation from the States, Christian cults and the AA - Gary stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: inspirational books. He spent years reading them before having a quiet revolution. Gary’s life was not transformed into a thing of beauty, but he did gain a passion for daily reflection and meditation. While the book itself is a narrative account of a journey to Lake Como, The coach to Como is ultimately the story of survival, recovery and evolution. The book is well crafted, with various threads being skilfully interwoven to give a colourful but incredibly honest account of the journey Gary has undertaken since he came to terms with his ego, his internal struggles with life, loneliness, rebelliousness and self-destructive behaviour.
Official Review: Chameleons by Marcus A. Nannini
4 out of 4 stars
At the depths of Pearl Harbor, on the morning of December 7th, 1941, Imperial Japanese Naval Lieutenant Masaharu Yokoyama and his engineer Sadamu Kamita await with bated breath aboard their midget submarine. In present day Kailua, Oahu, a skeleton is dug up in Auntie Lee’s backyard, launching not only a full blown naval investigation, but also a race against the clock to beat the media to the punch. Thus begins Chameleons by Marcus A. Nannini, a breathtaking historical fiction novel that has one foot planted firmly in the actions surrounding the attack on Pearl Harbor and the other around a present day investigation that could shed new light on those very events.
One stream in the novel follows Lt. Yokoyama, an elite Japanese naval officer hand-picked to be one of the Japanese empire’s secret midget submarine commanders who will attack the United States in 1941. Upon successfully delivering a crippling blow to the USS Oklahoma, he and his engineer are unable to make it back to their rendezvous point on the submarine from which they launched. They must put into action their contingency plan: slip ashore, meet up with Japanese/American sympathisers, and blend in with the surrounding population as would a chameleon. Lt. Yokoyama is given a new identity, a new job on the island, and a new family history. When the Japanese are gathered up and placed in internment camps, he is sure that he will have the power to motivate his fellow internees to rebel against the American guards and eventually make it back to his Emperor’s navy. However, Lt. Yokoyama quickly realises that there may not be as much animosity towards their incarcerators as he would hope. In fact, he soon finds himself at a crossroads that will challenge the balance between his previous loyalties and his adopted persona.
The second, concurrent stream in the novel follows Lieutenant Commander Christopher Pastwa and his team who are investigating a skeleton that was unearthed during a routine swimming pool construction. Alarm bells immediately ring in everyone’s head when the artifacts found with the skeleton appear to be of Japanese descent and tentatively date back to the Second World War. A notebook found with the artifacts is recovered, translated, and revealed to be that of a midget submarine commander in the Imperial Japanese Navy. The logbook describes his attack on Pearl Harbor and how he and his engineer slipped ashore. Although often hypothesized, the actions of midget submarine commanders during and after the December 7th attacks never had hard evidence to back them up. To make things worse, Lieutenant Commander Pastwa’s team is on a race against the clock to verify the authenticity of these documents and their potential implications, as the local media has caught wind of the investigation. Between the media’s pilfering of Top Secret documents from the investigation and the realisation that Lt. Yokoyama may still be alive, the team rushes to tie up all the loose ends. Admiral Reardon hates loose ends.
The cornerstone of an excellent historical fiction novel is research and it is extremely evident that Marcus A. Nannini has spent countless hours researching his subject. He has gone to painstaking depths to make as many elements of his story as real as possible and has done an amazing job. His descriptions of the training undergone by the submarine commanders, the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the landscapes of Hawaii, and the conflicts later on in the book are nothing short of exemplary. I loved how this book mixed elements from both the past and the present. Either of the storylines could have made an excellent book on their own, but together they add another dimension entirely. The mix of different characters in the present day timeline is also fantastic. There is a refreshing mix of hard-working naval officers, sleazy reporters, traitorous informants, and even a pudgy Petty Officer who lends a smidge of humor (not to mention a few donuts) to the plot. The thing I enjoyed the most about this book is how the concept of loyalty is addressed. In Lt. Yokoyama’s timeline, he has some tough decisions to make on where his loyalties lie. He needs to determine how to live his life during and after his time in the Japanese internment camps. In the modern timeline, the naval investigation team needs to decide whether their loyalty lies in doing the right thing or doing their job regardless of the consequences.
The only part of this book that I had issues with was the ending. There was a lot of build up toward the end of the book and I feel that some of the major conflicts which persisted throughout the novel were resolved a bit too quickly. To be clear, I liked how it ended, but I feel that it could have contained a bit more detail and depth for it to be realistic. As well, I felt that in the last couple of chapters Mr. Nannini was introducing new and irrelevant information to the story (new characters, conflict, etc.) I realise now that this is likely as a build up for future books with the same characters, but I found myself wondering how this fit into our current storyline.
I thoroughly enjoyed Chameleons by Marcus A. Nannini and therefore have no problem giving it 4 out of 4 stars. The quality and complexity of this book, along with how much I enjoyed the subject matter, swayed me from giving it a lower score. I would particularly recommend this book to anyone that has a soft-side for historical fiction, those that enjoy military history, or those that are interested in WWII/Pearl Harbour. If historical fiction really isn’t your cup-of-tea and you have no interest in books focused around military campaigns or investigations, this book won’t be for you. Mr. Nannini’s blend of real life events, a compelling modern day mystery, and vibrant characters has resulted in a first-class novel which could easily become a lasting gem in its genre.

Have you ever read or tried to read Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold and wondered what it was all about?
Not every Lewis reader is a Lewis scholar. Most pick up one of his stories or essays out of curiosity, not with academic intent nor with the hope of reading all of his works.
After teaching this novel for a decade, I determined to write a guide that would help any reader fully appreciate C.S. Lewis’s final, and favorite, work of fiction.
In Till We Have Faces, Lewis paints an unexpected picture of redemption. As Orual relates her selective memoir, she finds that her questions about the gods fall away. While Lewis’s retelling brings an unusual completion to the original Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche, this companion is a blend of summary and commentary that brings greater understanding of the characters, symbolism, and implied Christian themes outside of a classroom discussion.

Kedzie Greer is pretty, smart, accomplished, and loved. She grew up in paradise: a small lakeside community with utopian ideals. But on turning sixteen — the age of legal adulthood in 2199 — Kedzie decides she has had enough of paradise.
Story 1, “The Town With Four Names,” is about Kedzie's idyllic hometown, which has survived against all odds for more than three hundred years. Cassie Stillwater, a 90-year-old descendent of the original founder, writes down the town’s history, a history that turns personal.

1935. Hitler’s Nazi’s are firmly in control in Germany and the persecution of the Jews has begun in earnest. In this desperate time of uncertainty an unmarried Jewish woman gives birth to a daughter, whom she names Ruth.
But as the clouds of war gather, and it seems that Europe will once more be engulfed in conflict, Ruth’s mother makes the heart-wrenching decision to send her to safety on one of the ‘Kindertransport’ trains.
Arriving in England, Ruth is housed with a priest who raises her in the Christian faith, but also recognises her Jewish ancestry and so employs help to also raise her according to Jewish traditions.
It soon becomes apparent that Ruth is a very special child and has the ability to build bridges between people of different backgrounds, even at an early age.
From Nazi Germany to England and then to Australia, Ruth overcomes religious and ethnic intolerance and becomes an engineer on the Snowy Mountain Hydroelectric Project, defying all the odds.
It is a story of overcoming the brutality of life, of chasing your dreams and of bringing people together. But above all it is a story of hope.
In many local churches it is often said the church is a hospital. A place for the sick. Does that mean no one ever gets well ?
A hospital has its place in society, and has become a modern-day necessity. Hospitals are in business to make money by treating the body, but not the soul. It is a booming business for the medical profession, making billions of dollars.
The Lord did not come to build hospitals. He came to restore us back to the Father, and for us to have an abundant life in every way. The Church is not merely a hospital or a halfway house to check in and out for weekend visits.
Jesus Christ established HIS Church, and proclaimed His House is to be A House of Prayer. Come and go with DeBorrah K. Ogans to our Father's House in this new book, as she provides insight and encouragement,reminding us that our place of worship is to be "A HOUSE of PRAYER".
All too often the Scripture is quoted yet its imperial magnificent brilliance to enhance and enlighten our lives is overlooked. In the case of “judging” we need to ponder this subject and all its facets.
It is often said we are not to judge. Whether you realize it or not we all make judgments daily, often without thinking. You/we in fact judge when determining if something is so. As we continue on the path of godly spiritual learning we can acquire discernment. We become better equipped to navigate through this “Valley of the Shadow of Death.”
Time is of the essence for much of our world is out of control. We should seek to learn how to better judge with righteous judgment for the benefit of all concerned.
When you call me judgmental are you not being judgmental? After all, you have also just judged me as being judgmental. WOW! Think and ponder upon this for a moment. Just perhaps we can balance things out by first examining our own motives before we reach a conclusion. Self-examination is an ongoing part of spiritual growth. It is our attitudes that often need adjusting. Keeping in mind to judge means to analyze or evaluate as well as condemn or avenge. However, whenever we do judge one another it should not be done in a retributive manner but done constructively.
This book will enable you to broaden your perspective on the subject of judging. Don't "judge" the book by it's cover. Read it.

The chaos of the holidays are well documented. So, I decided to write this little book of humor of what women are really thinking behind all the Mona Lisa smiles. What's really going on and not what's supposed to be or is ideal to be happening. Since we still can't openly say what we're thinking without serious repercussion. We've cheerfully left the era of Roseanne Connor and returned the June Cleaver. We sane women need a survival kit.

Terrorism rising in Europe and the Middle East...global economies in disarray...tiny Israel threatened by enemies on all sides. Is this old world finally about to die?
In Voices, this question festers just below the conscious level all over the world, especially in light of an event thirteen months earlier when millions of people simply vanished from the earth.
Most of those remaining comfort themselves by playing along with the more or less official explanation—that UFO’s came by and beamed certain people aboard for reasons unknown. But deep inside they realize that explanation is nothing but a convenient fantasy and that in reality an event of Biblical proportions has occurred.
Daniel Goldman is among those who try to ignore the Disappearance. Consistent with his life-long commitment to rigid self-determination, he has pushed the matter out of mind and become even more fanatically focused on his work as an international investor.
But on a Monday morning in late September events outside his control begin to chip away at his comfortable ignorance. Everywhere he goes he finds himself hotly pursued and people wanting things from him he’d never contemplated. As he travels the globe negotiating the largest oil deal on the planet—and as an ancient empire gradually re-awakens—he meets and falls in love with a beautiful Israeli woman. She, together with her family and their rabbi, help Daniel discover he has never really been the “captain of his soul.” Instead, all his life a variety of “voices” have guided him to a single decision with eternal consequences. The Biblical Apocalypse is upon them and, one way or another, Daniel is destined to play an important role in prophesied events.
This novel, the first of a series about the end of this age, shows the world is not coming to an end—only this current evil age is. It also treats the Bible as the inerrant Word of God and presents a plausible picture of the end times according to a literal reading of its prophetic revelation.

After discovering Ben's abduction was more than a simple kidnapping, Titus joins forces with an unconventional operative whose peculiar ideas threaten to destroy the mission. As the search for Ben reaches a critical stage, Titus is suddenly called back to Langley.
It wasn't a rescue. . .
When he arrives back in the States, not only does he learn his mission has changed, he also learns he has a rival for Nikki Saxon's affections. Now, he must make a decision about their relationship. Do they have a future together, or would she be better off without him?
It wasn't a mission . . .
With Ben's life in imminent danger, Titus decides to risk everything--his career at the Agency, his future with Nikki Saxon, even his own life--in order to bring Ben Mitchell home.
It wasn't a rescue mission. It was much more.
More about his survival. More about his faith. More about himself.
Here's what reviewers are saying about Titus Ray Christian Thrillers:"I recommend these books for all who enjoy good clean fiction, especially those involving current events in the world. I like the development of the characters and their relationship. I gave it five stars for the great storyline and the characters that seem so real." -Amazon review
"The characters are very well-developed and believable. I enjoyed the way the author described Titus Ray's internal struggles and character flaws creating a very authentic main character. The story was action-packed and one is left wondering how the author could be so knowledgeable of the CIA and the work of their covert operatives." -Amazon review

The Christian book titled "Faith-Life" is basically a record of inspirations received by one Christian mind over a course of seven years.
People need to look at their government. I have written articles for over 20 years; from the first Bush to Obama. We have problems we need to face and quit sticking our head in the sand. It's okay to be a liberal or a conservative, but neither exists in our government today. Our politicians do everything but what they were elected to do: Represent the People. If you are open minded you will enjoy this. If you've only voted one party all of your life then don't download this book. Stop to look at what our politicians are doing today. If you are an open minded Christian you might enjoy this. And if you are you must admit God is probably not too happy. Atheists are offended. Everyone should be offended that they are offended. When talking about being Christian in the military becomes an act of "treason," then we have bigger problems. America has spent so much time protecting each individual’s rights that no one has any rights. Throughout history every great empire has collapsed; there have been no exceptions. To all the military living and dead who served the United States of America, with honor and sacrifice for freedom and their country, may the actions of Congress and our Presidents not make their dedication in to God and country in vain. WARNING! This is for mature audiences so if you’re a Democrat or Republican who always voted the same ticket, this is not for you, because it means you are incapable of thinking on your own, so I’d rather you not buy it. If you are a frustrated American upset with the current administrations then you may find these scribbles quit enjoyable. Should I Forget A simple reminder, since I might forget. These are scribbles of an Old Fart and you may find repetitions. This is due to “Oldheimers.” DISCLAIMER Any resemblance to political persons in office is purely intentional. FOR PETA’S SAKE! For your peace of mind let it be known that NO animals were injured during the making of these meandering scribbles. GIVE ME A BREAK! I’m not a racist, and I’m not a terrorist, I’m just trying to be funny and open your eyes to other solutions. If you have better ideas then you write a book. FINAL WARNING! Before you read this I must remind you that you have three choices. You can only pick one so be careful. You are a Democrat, a Republican or an American. If you picked one of the first two then don’t get this book and if you do then don’t complain. Americans tell the truth, the other two don’t. Offended yet? You will be; unless you’re an American. FOR OBAMA I’M AMERICA’S BIGGEST THREAT I’m a white, Christian, heterosexual, and I believe in traditional marriage. I am America’s Biggest Threat. Get Over It!

Grace and Angelica Carroll just moved from the city to a small town outside of Newark. Unknown to them both is the evil history of the town, and how it will turn their lives upside down.
This book is dedicated to Women around the world, I believe it's a time to be reminded of how Women used to be, and to honor the Old Fashion Woman. Somehow, we have became a stereotype, that has been totally turned upside down. We must not forget how significant we are in this world, and how to nurture one another, to uplift each other, to not degrade one another, but to compliment each other. I understand that times have changed, and there's more Women in the workforce, but there's so many amazing values we hold.
Nomen est omen, and everyone has a place in this society. Cain is somebody and still a nobody. How is your value measured and what do you value? Cain f’s it up, then he gets back in the saddle. He loves and he hates. Sometimes he masturbates, when he’s not too busy reading his Bible. He loves Led Zeppelin and adores Jimmy Page. He’s searching for his wings.
CAIN is a book for everyone. It’s for those who are searching for themselves and also for those who have a clear understanding of their place in this world, but have the perverse need to peep into someone’s soul and violate their privacy.

Radical Regenerative Gardening and Farming informs and inspires gardeners, and farmers, who wish to bring quality and integrity into their work with the land. It is about developing close relationships with land that produces our food. This book combines over 40 years of Frank Holzman’s experience in farming, gardening, education, research, and development to provide techniques and concepts for sustainable land use.
Radical Regenerative Gardening and Farming is a more spiritual and thoughtful approach to land stewardship, geared toward aspiring gardeners with a desire for a deeper connection with the earth. It is as much about why as it is about how to develop land. Rather than traditional tractor farming, this book provides a better understanding of horticulture, dealing with the biological interactions between soils and plants, and providing a good understanding of living systems. Holzman examines healthy perspectives of how to approach a piece of land as a living organism and transform it into a balanced ecosystem.
Frank Holzman provides lots of information and insight for backyard gardeners and professional farmers, alike. Truly a great resource for transforming the garden, as well as the gardener.

In life, everybody faces daily challenges. We can feel them in the core of our belly, and they cause a shift in our lives. Some impacts are more extensive than others and have major side effects such as depression, stress, or major illness. One of the ways we can release these shackles is to recognize, embrace, and accept The Impact of the Shift. This impact will awaken what is strong in you. I call these hurts growing pains. Remember what your mother told you: What doesn’t kill you will only make you strong-er! As each of your daily challenges is completed and you have overcome the impact of it, you will shift to another level in life. Throughout the process, remember to breathe, love, and forgive. Yes, you must repeat this all day and every day because you want to live, to im-prove, not just survive or exist—but to fully LIVE. Search your Pandora's Box of experiences because it is time to clean the darkness out. No one gets a pass on this. Accepting the Impact of the Shift without blaming anybody else allows you to take full responsibility, even when you think it is not your fault. If something is in your experience, somehow, someway, you have attracted that thing to yourself so that more good can grow from it. This book encourages you to answer questions, and I recommend jotting down short answers here plus purchasing a notebook where you can expand those answers. Responding to these questions will bring about the shift, and it will help you to review your answers occasionally. You will enhance your insight into your own personal shifts. I wish you the positive Impact of the Shift. Zinna Davis Shreveport, Louisiana
Fourteen Science-Fiction short stories that will add some needed spice and weirdness to your life, providing just the strange perspective you need to challenge your ordinary reality.
Some of these new stories carry on my concern with contemporary social issues (such as global warming, bullying, abortion, animal rights, gun control, etc.) by extrapolating them into the future or exploring them thru unusual perspectives. Other stories here briefly ponder philosophical questions such as the nature of good and evil and the concept of justice. Some are simply for the fun of making our spines tingle a bit. I like to think each story will be a thought provoker that you will consider the implications of after reading.
Remove the roadblocks in your life by removing the ones you carry within. The Bible tells us to examine ourselves and it will bring us closer to him. “But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup” (1 Corinthians 11:28).
This book will explore the four gifts every woman is born with. Knowing yourself will help you manage the inner fears that hold you back from being all you were made to be.
During this season of celebrating the Christ and the renewed hope that comes with a new year, this book gives you the foundation you need to begin your journey to a victorious and successful life.
